Kaleb Cole was held in Canada for 42 days, before being deported and banned from the country for life, according to newly released court records. Kaleb Cole, the reputed leader of a Washington-based neo-Nazi cell, was held by Canadian immigration authorities for 42 days before he was deported and banned from the country for life, according to newly release records obtained by the KING 5 Investigators. “They considered him such a threat to Canadian citizens that they did not release him (pending his deportation hearing),” said Seattle Police Department Sgt. Dorothy Kim in an audio recording of a court proceeding provided by the King County Superior Court.
The hearing on October 8, 2019, was part of an effort by the Seattle FBI’s terrorism squad, Seattle police, and prosecutors from Seattle and King County to disarm Cole. He is the admitted leader of the Washington unit of The Atomwaffen Division, according to documents filed in court. “They promote violence and the stockpiling of weapons among their members in preparation for a race war,” testified FBI Special Agent Kate Murphy. Authorities did not seek a criminal charge. They were asking the judge to grant a civil Extreme Risk Protection Order against 24-year-old Cole, who has lived in Snohomish and Whatcom counties.
